Was it worth it?
KARAR April 18, 2017 ETYEN MAHCUPYAN
The referendum result means to carry a country to a “one man” regime, and it will probably have social, economic and political consequences in the medium term. It will become more difficult to achieve success in foreign policy, and the full burden will be put on the AKP’s shoulders. After such a period, it will be but a dream for the AKP to win the election in 2019 with a parliamentary majority … Don’t be surprised if “no” becomes a missed opportunity in the minds of very conservative voters eventually ... Turkey lost a whole year for nothing and waived a correct move it could have made in the future. Just for the sake of winning this referendum, a vulnerability was caused that could lead to failure. Was it worth it?
